How can I create versions using Curl/JSON, with accents in the Data section



I'm trying to create multiple versions for a migration from another tool to JIRA.

Versions data are in French language and contain accents, that are difficult to upload in JIRA using Curl command lines and JSON format, in a Windows environment.


Can someone point me to the correct way to write that?


Here is what I have tried :


curl -X POST -H "content-type: application/json" "" -d "{\"description\": \"version intéressante\",\"name\": \"Version numéro 1\",\"archived\":false,\"released\":false,\"project\":\"PRJ1\"}"


and another one:


curl -X POST -H "content-type: application/json;charset=UTF-8" "" -d "{\"description\": \"version intéressante\",\"name\": \"Version numéro 1\",\"archived\":false,\"released\":false,\"project\":\"PRJ1\"}"


Both give me the same result:


{"errorMessages":["Invalid UTF-8 middle byte 0x44\n at [Source: org.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteInputStream@7d22ee91; line: 1, column: 24]"]}


Thanks for any insight you can give me.
